Inadhra by Ciuva Inadhra by Ciuva
This is the fixed version of my picture Sideways, which you can see here: Sideways WIP by Ciuva
There are a lot of things that still aren't as good as they possibly should be, but for my current skill level, I am happy. Still need to practice anatomy, though. I also experimented a bit with textures - not sure how happy I am with them.

I finally realised who this is, too. For those who don't know (which is most of you, I guess), I write novels and other stories, and most of the portraits I make end up as some kind of character from them. Not because I intend it, but subconsciously I seem to paint those characters, but I don't always realise it until I'm nearly done. Occasionally it's the other way around, and I paint a person who then suddenly becomes a character because I thought of an interesting backstory. 

This one is a woman called Inadhra. She started out as the youngest daughter of a noble house, was married off to the emperor (who's been the villain in a couple of stories) as a way of keeping her family under control, and then... Well, things happened. She's normally a kind and somewhat cautious person who prefers books to most people, but don't ever make her angry. Seriously.

You did a great job with her expression.  She really captures that idea that she can be your best friend or worst enemy.  The red shirt works well for her passionate attitude.  The look on her face says I could love you or I'm plotting to kill you, but i'll never tell. Great work!

She seems very coy/sassy almost.  I like the movement in her hair and the twinkle in her eye.

You did a good job with hair. I don't know if you wanted this effect, but actually I like this soft and blurry image :)

Thank you! I am rather fond of a softer style (most of the time, though it's seldom on purpose), so I'm glad you like it :)

Looks great!  A few subtle changes have made quite the difference...and I really like the textures you've used as well.
